Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll

Radio Dave



Radio Dave” Milberg is a “disc jockey-at-law,” combining concurrent careers as a broadcaster and as an attorney.

In addition to being “R.D. the D.J.” on Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll, he is an Adjunct Professor of Media Law at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. He also is a co-author of the two volume tome “Answer Songs,” available at Amazon.com.


Radio Dave is all about radio stations, radios, and rock ‘n roll. It’s a life-long passion that began in Detroit in the late 1950s. As a little kid, his ear was glued to the legendary Motor City radio stations of the day, such as WXYZ-AM, WKMH-AM, WJR-AM, WJBK-AM, WCAR-AM, and WWJ-AM. And when he could scrape together a few coins, they were spent at the stores along Woodward Avenue that sold 45s that had been played in juke boxes for the amazing (even way back then) price of just 5¢ each.  He daydreamed about playing and telling stories about those tunes on the radio. A few years later as a teenager, that dream became a reality.  More than 50 years later, he continues to live that dream to this very

day.


Radio Dave’s “groove yard” (described below) is decorated with classic radios dating back to the 1920s.  The radios pictured on this page represent the decades featured the most on R&SRNR – the 1950s and 1960s.
